What Does ‘Delivering The Friendly’ Mean?

Have you heard? Bin There Dump That recently became the sponsor for Team Glenn Howard, the renowned curling institution. It just fits: Proper sweeping is critical to a successful curling team, and it is equally important to a successful residential dumpster bin service.Howard_2

It’s also reflective of Bin There Dump That’s stated objective to “deliver the friendly.”

Delivering the friendly is more than just a slogan. At Bin There Dump That, it’s a credo, a mantra, a way of life.

 Practicing What We Preach

“Delivering the friendly” is part of the Bin There Dump That business model. The concept weaves its way through many aspects of the business.

Delivering the friendly starts with customers connecting directly with their local franchise operator, not some automated system that offers a menu of options (and little satisfaction). Our franchise operators invest time in their customers to teach them the nuances of renting a dumpster and assuring the rental information is correct.

For all Bin There Dump That franchise operators, it means providing mini bins that are clean, attractive and comply with most homeowner association rules. Bins are compact and can fit into driveways, alleys and tight spaces. Bins are easy to load from the rear, with double door access. Bins do not rest directly on or damage driveways.

When customers order a Bin There Dump That bin they will NOT get a traditional dumpster; they will get a Residential Friendly Dumpster.

Residential Friendly means helpful, professional drivers arrive at customers’ doors on time, always respecting their properties — delivery drivers lay down boards that protect the driveway — and when the dumpster is picked up, the franchise operator ALWAYS sweep up any left over debris from the rental.

Earning Customers For Life

What Does ‘Delivering The Friendly’ Mean?As Howard says, our commitment is simple: to give you a residential-friendly dumpster service that is so good that you will refer us to family, friends or business associates.

We answer the phone promptly, listen respectfully and suggest solutions professionally.

We show up when promised … saving you time and stress. Our vehicles, bins and drivers are clean. It’s all a part of delivering the friendly.

The bin fits into the driveway — saves labor and time and usually allows you to park your vehicle inside your garage. Once the bin is full, simply call us and we will return at a pre-arranged time to remove the bin. The driveway area is swept before we leave, showing respect for your property.

Delivering the friendly is about providing customers with more than what they need. It also means giving back to the communities in which our customers live. For example delivering the friendly also means that we are community members first, often contributing to community efforts like Habitat for Humanity.

Bin There Dump That couldn’t be more excited to sponsor Team Glenn Howard. That’s because we know that Howard is a Canadian institution, a name that inspires trust and instantly conveys winning results.

After a decade of establishing ourselves as a partner to homeowners and builders throughout both Canada and the United States, we strive to inspire the same thoughts in our customers. This sponsorship echoes our desire and signifies the start of the next stage of our company.

“We feel lucky for the opportunity to partner with somebody who people know and respect already and who has a proven track record of success,” said John Ferracuti, vice president and general manager of Bin There Dump That.

The upcoming season will be the start of something new for Howard as well. Not only will his team have a new sponsor; it will also have a new roster and a new look. Former third Richard Hart – himself a world champion, Brier champion and Olympic silver medalist – is coming out of retirement to rejoin the team.

Another new addition is two-time Brier winner and world champion Jonathan Mead. The lone holdover from last year is Craig Savill, who has served as the team’s lead since 2004.

With new names appearing on the back of the jersey, Howard felt that this would be the perfect chance to change the look on the front. “We’re super excited to have Bin There Dump That as our title sponsor this year,” Howard said. “[This is a] new beginning.”
